a 6 year extension today.


Would have liked to at least go half way to the season to see how his ACL reacts. But anyway, good move.

I'm happy we got him before he had a comeback season. He would have then commanded much more money. Plus Cushing is the leader of this defense. Great move.

I wouldn't, it's not like these contracts are guaranteed. Texans hold all of the leverage before Cushing proves he's still a BAMF.


Next on the list... lock up Watt!

Lol. Even if we wanted to lock up JJ, no way would his agents agree to an extension at this point. JJ's next contract is going to be so massive our great grandkids will be paying the bills.

As for Cushing...meh. We will see.

That's a surprise, I would have thought they'd want to see much more from Brian before inking a new deal, I got to think they (the Texans) got him at a discount because they are assuming considerable risk here. We will wait and see what the actual numbers are ?

Rick has been pressing to get this done before the season started, as his policy is no contract negotiations during the season. Glad it worked out.

Default Re: Cushing Gets Extension

This tells me that Texans are ok with Cushing' health & his possible productivity this season far outweighs risks he may not heal and be the Cushing of old. I think I'd have waited a bit longer but if they are convinced it is great to lock him in. Now if Mays or Sharpton or both can have good season another concern of mine is eliminated.

Uh, either way, it doesn't matter.

Watt is not stupid. He knows how the game works. Even he knows that he'll likely command more money if he waits another year or two to re-do his contract. Other teams would sell everything they owned to get a JJ Watt. Don't think he doesn't know what.

Don't let his "aw shucks" public face fool you. Despite his "nice guy" demeanor, he's shrewd and calculating.

There's no guarantee that Watt will have another season anywhere close to what he had in 2012. There's also a big chance that he'll get some kind of injury that will prevent him from ever doing so again....... just getting one year older may hurt his chances.

If the Texans were to offer him an extension today that he felt was fair he'd be silly not to take it.

Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one.
